invisible partition

  chriscross72 21:02 02 Nov 2004

I created a 10gb partition on my 40gb hard drive using Acronis partition expert
My hard drive shows the space has gone but I cannot find the missing partition.I have used the Acronis programme but it only shows my C drive(with 10gb less than when I started)and not the partition it named F drive.
I have also tried booting the pc with both windows 2000 and xp cd roms to see if I can find the missing partition to format it.
I am now a bit stuck....any ideas would be gratefully received
Can I get my missing 10 gb back or format it so windows can at least see it and I can then install XP as I was planning to

Have you tried booting up with a W98 floppy disk and using fdisk? This can be downloaded from click here if you haven't got a copy.
